Chicago Bears Week 9 storylines: A third-and-19 nightmare, Bill Lazor’s message and Mike Tomlin’s example

“Every day we talk about it, as far as how we game plan the red zone, how we game plan third down, what are the best things for him to be on? How do we get him the ball? The reality is the way we’re playing football right now, there are a lot of unhappy offensive pass catchers but they’re being professional and they’re trying to help us win. When you’re running the ball so much, (among) your pass catchers, no one is going to be happy. And that is the case. … When you run the ball this much, certain people are happy about it. But we’re not happy when we don’t score the points. And usually in this league passing production leads to more points. Until we get the passing game to produce better, we’re going to have a hard time. … To look at the big picture, we’ve got so many specific little scopes of how do we get more production in the passing game to look at. So I just don’t spend a lot of time worrying about how many targets and catches a guy will end his year with. I’m trying to get us to score enough points to beat the next team. And like I said, to me, until the passing game changes, it’s going to be hard for that to be different.”
